    Your video was excellent, got me psyched up and thirsty. I keep hearing great things about DC Brau can't wait to try some. Jeff, the lab you have set up, do you personally handle all the chemistry related flavor analysis stuff or do you have a dedicated mad scientist on staff ?

    I love that this is inspired by Fugazi! Are/were you involved with the DC hardcore scene at all?

    I hope the beer lives up to it's expectation. We do some great work down here in DC, I oversee the lab but have a brewer that moonlights in the lab for the heavy lifting. I do jump in from time to time or fill in when he's busy brewing or doing cellar work. Cheers and looking forward to raising apint with everyone tonight

    Yeah, love our DC Hardcore heritage. I was not personally involved in the scene aside from going to a bunch of Fugazi shows at Fort Reno when I was in middle / high school when I was a skate rat

    Same here LOL, I love the old Fezzywig Ale label, I miss that beer, wish they made it outside of the mixed holiday pack. Also miss Sam's old Triple Bock in the old school 18th century inspired historic looking blue bottles

    Looking forward to trying this one. On the Wings of Armageddon is one of my favorite beers. Great stuff. Still remember buying a six pack of the Public a few days after the launch.

    Has the growth in the local beer/brewing scene since you founded DC Brau surprised you?

    Makes me smile that they named a kick ass beer after a straight edge band.

    I noticed the color is a little darker than most hazys. What's your secret?

    Great beer! Have you ever tried sitting backwards on the toilet and using the back of the toilet as a little table for your beer?

    What a fun flavor profile..and then there is an explosion of joy at the end which lingers. What is that due to?

    Nats season ticket holder here -- can we expect anything new at the ballpark this year or next? I always head for the District Drafts taps to get your latest.

    When trying something new like this, especially with so many hop varieties, do you do small test batches or just go all in and hope it turns out?

    Lots of local bartenders claim that West Coast IPA was developed so that longterm weed-smokers could taste their beer.
